Weigh in on the future of Ann Morrison Park on Thursday

Boise Parks and Recreation is inviting the public to share ideas for the future of Ann Morrison Park, the city's biggest.

The department hopes to get input on appropriate uses for the park, layout, traffic patterns, parking, entry signs, wayfinding signs, interaction with the Boise River and amenities. The park has not been updated since it was first developed in 1959.

The city, along with the Harry W. Morrison Foundation, is considering a variety of tweaks to the existing park, including a new fountain, more usable space along the river and perhaps a new shelter or two.

Thursday's meeting starts at 6 p.m. in the Old Timer’s Shelter, located in the northeast corner of Ann Morrison Park.

If you can't attend the meeting you can give your ideas for the park online at this link. You can also email Boise Superintendent of Parks Tom Governale at or call (208) 608-7624.
